Kansas Department of Labor furloughs 66 employees because of government shutdown

TOPEKA, Kansas – The Kansas Department of Labor announced Friday that the shutdown of the Federal Government is leaving them with a shortage of funds to pay administrative personnel.

66 unclassified employees will be furloughed without pay as of 11:59 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5.

63 of those employees are from the Topeka office, two are from the Wichita office and one is from the Great Bend office.

The office says Unemployment Insurance (UI) Benefits will continue to be processed and Kansas employers will still need to submit Quarterly Wage Reports as usual.

The KDOL Division of Workers Compensation will continue regular operations and appeal hearings.
